The Kills dévoile son nouveau single ‘Wasterpiece’

aujourd’hui 'Wasterpiece'. Ce morceau entraînant sublimés par les voix entremêlées d'Alison Mosshart et de Jamie Hince est extrait de leur prochain album God Games, qui sortira ce vendredi 27 octobre via Domino.

Ce single s'accompagne de l'annonce d'une tournée de 30 dates en Amérique du Nord, avec des concerts dans des lieux emblématiques tels que le Webster Hall de NYC et le Wiltern à Los Angeles. Vous pouvez trouver la liste complète des dates et des informations sur la mise en vente des billets ici.

Alors que les singles précédents voyaient The Kills explorer les angoisses, à la fois personnelles et collectives, liées à l’inhospitalité mondiale, le groupe présente 'Wasterpiece' avec le même aplomb séducteur qui a marqué sa carrière légendaire. Des refrains taquins et auto-dépréciatifs comme “you’re VIP in the hall of fame / I’m RIP on the walk of shame” propulsent un sentiment d'urgence tangible, aussi bien dans l'arrangement rythmé que dans les voix du duo. La chanson est accompagnée d'une vidéo méditative et sardonique du réalisateur Noel Paul (Mitski, 'Bug Like An Angel', Slowdive, 'Kisses') qui place The Kills en tant que témoins d'une crise sur un parcours de golf.

The Kills God Games

Album | 27th October 2023

Whether we look for him or not, we all find God somewhere. It could be in nature. It could be in church. It could be in the metaverse. It differs for each and every one of us. In terms of where God might be, The Kills aren’t necessarily saying, but the duo - Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince - certainly sound like they’ve seen him. How else could you explain the primal call-and-response between Alison’s full body blues-soul vocal catharsis and Jamie’s swaggering, guillotine-smooth guitar transmissions on the duo’s sixth full-length offering, God Games?

The Kills have emerged as international rock stars, setting the pace for the genre, shaping this era’s sound, and redefining what rock music can be in the 21st century. They’re the rare force of nature who can tour with Queens of the Stone Age or Guns N’ Roses and light up Coachella. Returning home from the road in 2019, Alison and Jamie commenced writing for what would become God Games. However, the old adage, “Make plans, God laughs,” couldn’t have been more apropos.

Stretching boundaries, Jamie encouraged Alison to “buy this 100-dollar keyboard and try to write.” She added another creative tool to her arsenal, while he tinkered with textures, sounds and “wrote on guitar less than ever,” opting to primarily compose on piano for the first time. This powerful combination of forces gave the album its own sonic identity, a new path forged in the pair’s creative bond.

The Kills decamped to an old church (a bit ironic now isn’t it?) where they recorded with old friend and Academy and GRAMMY Award-winning producer Paul Epworth [Adele]. “Paul was our very first soundman in 2002,” recalls Jamie. “Since he was with us when we had two amps, a lightbulb, and a couple of mics in a van, it seemed perfect. He knew how far it had come and could trace the thread back.”
